Eric Ripert was on Charlie Rose last night, and Rose chuckled his way amiably through a bit about Frank Bruni. To no one's surprise but the host's, Ripert explained how he prepared his staff for a visit from the former Times critic. "You wanted to recognize him," Rose said. "Of course!" responded Ripert. "We do that with all of them." Watch the video to see Ripert get a little flush when he realizes just how much Bruni likes Le Bernardin.
